Comrie Croft is one of Scotland's best trail centres and captures the spirit of mountain biking in all its glory. The trail centre combines a feeling of free-living, unique accommodation options including nordic kata's, wild camping, eco-lodges and hostels, a range of activities, a fantastic café, a quality bike shop, and (of course) an amazing range of trails.

Comrie Croft, owned by 50 employees and local people, has a vision for rural regeneration with a rich natural environment that includes people, homes, farming, recreation and businesses as an integral part. Specifically they are rewilding over 50 ha of land; planning to build affordable natural housing; providing opportunities for ten (and counting) nature-based enterprises; growing food; outdoor recreation and other land uses as part of an interdependent ecosystem.
